Chinking

Chinking

Chinking differs from log home caulking in two primary ways.  First, chinking typically has a slightly stiffer consistency which makes it better suited for larger bead applications.  It can still be used for smaller beads but is easier to apply and tool in a larger seam than most caulking.  Chinking like Log Jam has much more texture than most caulking and is often used to mimic a traditional mortar seam. Chinking can be used in both exterior and interior applications.  Use of a bond breaker like backer rod is recommended behind all chinking joints.
